Kusina at iba pa! is a repository of famous and unique Filipino
and Filipinized recipes. The conceptualization for Kusina at iba pa! started
with Jovel Cipriano, founder of Pinoydelikasi, an Filipino delicacy store.
Visitors of Pinoydelikasi.com frequently ask for Filipino recipes, like
sinigang and adobo, that they can use at home for parties, gatherings,
and other special occasions. He was initially able to offer 15 native
recipes to his regular customers.
In Dumaguete at a mini-IT conference, he met Rae Pedrosa, developer and
designer for Negros On-Line, with his wife, Naomi, a cook in one of Dumaguete's
famous restaurants. Jovel proposed the idea of creating an on-line, searchable
database of Filipino Recipes. It was at this moment that the first version
of Kusina at iba pa! was born. Originally called Lutong Pinoy, the website
was launched on Negros On-Line's servers for beta testing and refining.
Lutong Pinoy had an initial 15 searcheable recipes on its list, now it
has a total of 53 recipes and growing. Kusina at iba pa! can rightfully
call itself the Premier Filipino Recipe Portal, with relevant information
about Filipino cooking. Tips are available on basic to advanced methods
of preparation, execution and presentation of dishes.
